My family has tried several things from The Herbal Toad and have been happy with everything that we have gotten. This tincture was my first experience with tinctures but it won't be the last. I was shocked at just how well this worked!
Our Aller-G Tincture is one of natures most effective combinations for allergy sufferers, and here's why:
Mullien: This soothing, healing, antispasmodic respiratory remedy profoundly supports the lungs, especially when there is irritation, inflammation, or infection. It makes a great supportive herb in tea, tincture, and capsule blends.
Goldenseal: Can reduce allergic rhinitis (hay fever) by reducing inflammation of the mucous membranes and prevent severe allergic reactions by calming the nervous system.
Stinging Nettle: Stinging Nettle has been used for years, dating back as far as ancient Greece. Stinging nettle has been shown to have excellent anti-inflammatory abilities. Studies have shown that the bioactive components of stinging nettle can actually inhibit multiple inflammatory events. This is important because it is those inflammatory events that actually cause seasonal allergy symptoms.
Goldenrod: Often wrongly accused of ragweed reactions, goldenrod blooms in the same places yet possesses anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antihistamine properties. It helps to thin and remove excess mucus and congestion, particularly in the sinuses.
Angelica: Angelica decreases the amount of antibodies your body produces when faced with allergens. This action helps to educate the body that it need not overreact in the presence of allergens.
Coltsfoot: Coltsfoot (aka Butterbur) been shown to significantly improve unpleasant allergy symptoms. One study in the British Medical Journal of 125 people with hay fever found that the butterbur worked just as well as cetirizine, which is marketed as Zytrec. The researchers also concluded that butterbur is a smart choice for anyone looking to improve their allergy symptoms while avoiding the sedative effects of antihistamines. Even though cetirizine is considered a non-sedating allergy medicine, this study found that subjects who took it experienced fatigue and drowsiness.
